Welcome to the history website for the
parish of St Breward in Cornwall

St Breward History Group has been established to preserve the history of the parish of St Breward for future generations.  Meeting on a monthly basis in the Memorial Hall, the members are recording a range of areas which reflect parish life. From the history of houses to the background of various groups which exist.  It is also hoping to capture reminiscences of working life, including at the De Lank Quarry as well as archiving existing material which is in its possession.

New members are always welcome.  If you have an interest in history or have some information which you think may be of use to the group please come along and join us. For all enquiries please use the form on the contact page.

Memories of St Breward

After a hugely successful sell-out launch day in November 2015, a limited number of copies are again available at £9.99 + postage.

The book is a collection of memories of our older residents who were born and brought up here in the twenties and thirties. It’s packed with over seventy-five photographs taken from the village archive, showing life as it used to be in our lovely moorland home.
